Area: LisbonI am an early retired manufacturing and process engineer. We moved to Portugal several years ago. The house that was bought is made of recycled materials- old telegraph poles and railway sleepers. It is in a beautiful country location on the Silver Coast, and the views are stunning.

Area: EnglandI need help with decorating and DIY in my home overlooking the sea on the south coast of England. I am an artist and teacher. I have a studio space in the house which volunteers are welcome to use. St Leonards on sea is part of Hastings and is a mecca for creative characters. The road I live in is a lovely bohemian mix of antique and craft shops, artists studios and cafes. I am fairly quiet and spend quite a lot of time reading, meditating and painting but I also like enjoying the vast range of cafes, pubs and restaurants on offer locally. This placement would probably suit a slightly older self-reliant person ( over 25) who also enjoys some of the activities I do and is also happy to spend some time alone sightseeing or reading/using their computer in their own room. Although it might suit a younger person who enjoys a quieter peaceful environment.
